Hannah Karminski was born April 24, 1897, in Berlin. She was a teacher, social worker, and feminist who served as secretary of the Jüdischer Frauenbund and editor of its newsletter. After the Jüdischer Frauenbund was forcibly disbanded by the Nazis, she continued her work in social welfare with the Reichsvereinigung der Juden in Deutschland. She stayed in Germany to continue her work, even after her parents and sister Erna Berlowitz emigrated from Germany to Lugano, Switzerland, in 1939. In December 1942, she was deported to Auschwitz, where she was murdered
